If I was going to spend crazy $$$ on a jacket, I am seeing it in person. I'm from Northern NJ but I went to Revzilla's store & spent practically the afternoon there until I got it right. Massive thanks to Joanne D for getting me the right Ronin!!! The Ronins are actually all different inside so be careful. We had to go through 3 or 4 tobbaco jackets until we found the insides where the armor goes were finally stitched in the correct spots. Alot of them were incorrectly stitched, the armor was protecting my triceps! They have a great store & awesome staff & I recommend going there if you get a chance, it's unlike any competitor's stores.
I bought the Large with all the armor = I'm 6'1'' 188lbs with 43'' chest & 36" waist. It felt a little short on the sleeves, but gauntlets and even short gloves line up just right where the sleeves end. It's also very tight, but it's been 1 1/2 months now & about 20 rides later it's comfortable. I overdid layering on purpose so it would stretch out, and extra layers really work to make it expand permanently to your comfort. I'm 99% positive I could of gotten away with an XL, cuz the sleeves felt so nice & long, chest was comfortable, but then there would be too much leather down in the gut and upper arm flapping at high speeds. I think it's probably unnoticeable to others but that's the trade off if you go bigger.

This backpack is really comfortable and I really don't think anything as spacious as this could be pulled off. The straps for adjusting are awesome & really take the weight of the shoulders. The structure feels like it will last forever.

I really like this jacket, I've used it in the winter more than my Dainese. It's actually less protective than what I'm used to, but the feel/look is nice & blocks wind great. I ride alot with just a long sleeve t-shirt underneath in 30-40 degrees & I'm good to go. I love the fur collar, but it doesn't stay "popped up" like other collars, so when zipping up, I always have to make sure the fur is straight up or it gets hidden underneath, and the jacket won't zip up all the way if I don't adjust the fur.
I'm wearing a black XL & I'm 6'1". It doesn't expose my back, but It's just a touch short "mentally": you know the feeling when you think its riding up. Sometimes that can be a distraction like aggressive riding (highway not streets). The Knox back protector was purchased & made the feel a little tight but def necessary. I really wish they added a small loop on the center bottom of the jacket to just hook to a belt loop on your pants. Maybe I could get that sewed on somewhere?
I'm glad I got it, & the price was right during Black Friday.
Thanks Revzilla!

I also purchased this for my 2007 Duc Monster 695 after seeing the review on how comfortable it was & that it fits an 07'.I was always on the fence between Sargent and Corbin seats, but I'm so glad I picked Sargent.
First off, thanks to Revzilla for sending this in a timely manner, and for free shipping of course! When I got the seat, it was simple instructions: just slide into the front latches & the back will follow. That's It!
I am 6'1'', and the OEM seat was always feeling a little too low, this one brought it to a perfect riding stance. No sliding anymore & my posture feels slightly more upright giving my abs & lower back a little more tension (which is nice) than on my wrists & shoulders. I feel more responsive to maneuvers. After 2hr rides, I'm not even slightly sore.
The see-thru canister that goes under the seat is spacious & way easier to open than the OEM compartment. I haven't put my toolkit in there yet, but I'm 99% positive it fits with some room for more.
Don't think twice about your next upgrade, this is it right here.

I bought a size Large for my [Shift Trifecta textile jacket XL] but I would of had to cut it by maybe 4inches from the bottom to fit. Since it's cooler out now, I switched to my [Dainese Racing Leather Jacket (size 56)]. The bio armor fit in the Dainese jacket perfectly & saved me a ton of money that I would of dished out for the G2 protector. At first I thought it would give me a stiff back, but it contoured to my shape. I feel real safe wearing it & when I switch back to my Shift jacket, I'll probably just order a Medium bio armor solely for the Shift Jacket. As a new rider, I feel protected like Gotham's finest.
Yes, I recommend this product.
